Today my dad found out he had two half brothers that he never met. We knew of one, but not his younger brother, and they knew of my dad, but not his younger sister. Bolivar got around. He had at least 4 wives and 5 children. Well, his sons Jean and Henri gave up their searches for the American side of the family, but Jean's daughter Isabelle has been searching. Thanks to the Mormons, who seem to love ancestry.com (and still baptize and seal us after our deaths--but that's a whole other story), Isabelle has found my dad, her long lost uncle.
I have a French cousin. I don't know that anything will come of it, but finding this photograph of Roderick Bolivar Burton was totally awesome.
